Let me start off by saying that I can’t sing worth a damn, let alone play an instrument, but I am an absolute sucker for a great solo female artist or band with an amazing female lead. Maybe its the relate-ability you can get from their lyrics... Or the envy you feel when you watch them take the stage with complete confidence and control a crowd. Whatever it is I love it! Over the years there has been tons of bands with amazing women taking the lead and there are a few of the ladies that I cant get enough of. Not only are they fantastic at what they do, they also have a great sense of style. The way I see it, the more rock girl power the better. Thank you ladies for being so bad ass...I will continue to be envious and live vicariously through your awesomeness.
